FROGS Projects 2007 Part 2

Muhammaden LBS, Banjul

Muhammaden LBS, Banjul. The school appealed to FROGS for funding to re-establish a school feeding programme for the pupils. After buying the basic foodstuffs FROGS visited the school and saw excellent meals being produced for over 1,500 children. The school is very pleased that FROGS backed their initiative and have pledged to sustain the project.

This Project cost 465.00 or D24,640.

Archdeacon Matthias George NS, Serrekunda

This nursery school built by an English lady in memory of her parents, is very well built and well structured teaching is being given to the children. The donor had however run out of funds and lacked cupboards and shelving. In fact no storage had been supplied. FROGS commissioned a local carpenter to build storage cupboards in the Head teachers office, store and every classroom, plus shelves for toys, books, jigsaws etc. in the playroom. The project was completed in 10 days.

This Project cost 333.00 or D17,665.

Pats Nursery School Kerewan

This nursery school in a remote area was suffering vandalism and theft. The Head teacher, Georgiana Jallow, appealed to FROGS to help her build a small house so that someone could live on site to ensure security. A small two room house was built and a new watchman is now on site. He also tends the small school garden. As FROGS had provided toys and furniture in the past, it was sensible to protect them from theft. This Project cost 396.35 or D20,610.

Seino Primary School

Seino Primary School. This excellently run school is slowly developing by adding more classrooms each year, to keep up with the school intake. The Head teacher Mrs. Haddy Seine asked FROGS to sponsor the crazy tiling of the floors in two newly built classrooms. Crazy tiling is an excellent remedy to floor erosion. The school children designed patterns to be included in the floors.

This Project cost 409.00 or D21,700.

St.Theresa's Cycle School, Fula Batang, Central River Division

The location of this school, way up country, meant that FROGS had to enlist the help of an US Peace Corps volunteer, Katia Jonas, who was working at the school. The school had a ruined, disused classroom and wanted a library. Katia oversaw the alterations, and though this project took a while to complete, the end product was excellent.

The school now has a library/resource room equipped with tables, benches and shelving, plus steel shuttered windows to keep out the worst of the dust. FROGS visited the completed project during a visit to Georgetown area and were extremely pleased with the end result.

This Project cost £375.00 or D19,880.
St Teresas Cycle School

Killy LBS

Following an appeal from the Head teacher Mrs Sigga Saine, the FROGS team visited the school to see their "kitchen". A small black room with no windows or chimney. The Head teacher was appealing on behalf of the cooks who suffered badly from the effects of smoke whilst cooking meals for the 300+ children.

FROGS agreed to build a new kitchen and food store. The new kitchen with enclosed cooking pots, chimney and food store was officially handed over to the school on 12th June 2007, in front of a large gathering of appreciative villagers, members of the teaching profession and Education Department.

This Project cost £618.00 or D32,750.


Killy Kitchen Rebuild Killy Kitchen Rebuild

Progress NS, Jeddah

Another floor project, this time at a small nursery school. The school had benefited from FROGS furniture in the past and the eroding floors meant that the furniture could get damaged. FROGS funded the relaying of the floors in two classrooms and the office.

This Project cost £347.00 or D18,400.

Jeddah LBS

This school had been sponsored by another charity for the building of a new classroom block, but unfortunately due to increasing costs, the funding did not run to laying good concrete floors.

The Headmaster Mr. Amadou Kambi with whom FROGS has had a good relationship for some years, appealed to FROGS for funds to finish the building. FROGS funded the laying of the floors in four classrooms, an office and the veranda.

This Project cost £502.00 or D26,600
